Artist Statement

Ode
The hexagon has more to it than we think, and some of the aspects of this shape are still mysterious. The series is an ode to the aesthetics that I fell in love with in a geometrical fascinating how hexagons are part of our life but fail to realize this. It all comes down to the element that is present throughout our body, and that is carbon.

The use of the form dates back to ancient Mesopotamia ca. 690 BC in the form of hexagonal shaped cuneiform of the Assyrian king Sennacherib´s annals, and is one of the first humans found to utilize hexagonal shapes.

The series comes in natural solid pine or burned pine that gives it its character and tactility in the visible wavy woodgrains.

Artist Profile

Hometown: Eskilstuna

Based in: Eskilstuna

Sizar Alexis is a Swedish-Iraqi product and furniture designer that experiments
with objects that display serenity through geometrical shapes, while
remaining robust in volume. His trademark style is built on creating objects
bear a strong character, accomplished through the use of raw and imperfect
surfaces in combination with a deep interest in Brutalism and the rich
cultural and architectural heritage from ancient Mesopotamia. He uses
the delicate character of noble materials juxtaposed with Brutalist angular
shapes to create objects that stand the test of time.

Background and history

Sizar Alexis was born in Ankawa, just outside the city of Erbil in northern
Iraq. His Chaldean roots puts his lineage in a straight line back to 5000 BC
in ancient Mesopotamia. In 1997, he moved to Sweden with his family and
settled in Eskilstuna. During his studies at Beckmans College of Design,
he started to explore his interest in designing objects and furniture for the
home. He holds bachelor’s degrees in Engineering (2009) and Fine Arts (2019).
